Aaron Belz lives in Hillsborough, North Carolina. He is the author of three books of poetry: The Bird Hoverer (BlazeVOX, 2007), Lovely, Raspberry (Persea, 2010) and Glitter Bomb (Persea, 2014), of which Marjorie Perloff writes, “Aaron Belz keeps his eye on the object: often hilarious, he is also wise.”

excerpt from the poem
I sat in the yard.
Or should I say, the yard sat in me.
The yard and its trees were in my heart as was an invisible person I’d never met.
